Known for being one of the high end restaurants in Braga, Brac delivered good food (mixed across our table of four - exquisite monkfish and shrimp rice stew, slightly poor tiger shrimp dish and decent duck breast) in a stylish interior. However, for truly delicious and clever food in yet another stylish restaurant with great ambiance, I'd recommend the restaurant... More

The first impression was very good, the table was ready and they took our jackets. Very elegant and tasteful atmosphere, with attentive waiters. The starters are delicious and I could perfectly have selected a few and feel happy only with starters throughout all dinner. The wine list is ok, bit I had the feeling the waiter wasn't pleased when 3... More

I would expect more of one of the most recommended restaurants in Braga. The buffet is not that much variated, although in general it's a fine restaurant.

They were very accommodating, but no one goes at opening (6pm) to any restaurant in Portugal. Go after 7:30pm. I had to try their take on the ubiquitous cod but I'm more of a meat person than a fish person. So they made an appetizer size of it and it was good and the quantity was good. But the Portuguese...

One of the best places of Braga to taste excellent snacks, typical of a noble region rich in flavors. The quality / price ratio is incomparable! Press the live music at Tuesday! Must-visit for anyone who spends! Maria Helena is fantastic to welcome guests!

The restaurant is pleasant and located right next to roman ruins. Waiters were kind and the food/price relation is very good. However, we waited for over one hour to get the second dish after the starters!! We were a party of 10 or so, but asked for what was in the menu of the day for the most part... Of... More

The location is very nice, with an attractive terrace.The starters were very tasty and well presented. Our main course was the rice with scallops and monkfish, it was nice but we've had better. I hope in our next visit the food will be more surprising. They had live music on the terrace, it's nice and romantic but a little bit... More

Brac has an attractive terrace on the edge of the old town, with a connecting door leading to some fascinating excavations of the ancient Roman settlement. Just as well, really, we had plenty of time for sightseeing before our order arrived on the table. There was just a handful of diners on a Wednesday evening, so why a couple of... More
